africa and the operations of hezbollah. we had experts here in the audience dealing with latin america. the question is, what are the iranians doing? what is hezbollah doing in that area? and in connection with the iranian involvement, and we do have our record of almost 30 years, it seems to me that we have to ponder the future with great concern particularly when we see the continuity of the ahmadinejad regime in iran today. so again, the bottom line of the question of threats and response depends on the perception of the threat and the coming of around at that i think we have to develop in order to reduce the risk of terrorism. so unfortunately from the academic point of view and a practical point of view, we would have to deal with this issue in the coming months as well as the coming years. i like to thank this opportunity -- take this opportunity to thank our panelist for this discussion. at this point, i would also like to recognize the interns who have worked with us this summer, who are finishing the work tomorrow. would you all please rise? where are the interns? this is the

on as the president of the united states tries to say, hey, america, i have it right, here's the plan, please accept it. it's not going well. why is it that it's not going well? is it the republican's fault? perhaps it's not. steve: perhaps it is the fact that the president and his people are selling it the wrong way. and, in fact, if you take a look at what's going on right now, there's kind of an intraparty war going on because over the weekend kathleen cebellius said that government option was not an essential part of the president's plan and the far left suddenly goes, wait a minute, this isn't going to pass without that. plus you look at how there's been the model on that and how the president has tried selling it essentially in the beginning as it's going to be about costs and stuff like that. he didn't really show americans how it's going to impact them. that's been the real disconnect. i've already got insurance and i like my insurance. you want me to change everything? how's it going to impact me? the president has failed in that respect. gretchen: there are three competing bills right now.
obama came into office, many in america and around the world hoped he would breathe life into the prospects for a peace deal between israel and the palestinians. obama fed that hope by quickly appointed a man on the issue, appointed a man on the issue, a man of integrity, former senator george mitchell, who had negotiated the peace accords in ireland. it is considered by some to be the most right wing in memory, as is the new government. the prime minister netanyahu had been fiercely critical of any kind of palestinian state. his foreign minister had previously called for what some had characterized as leaders from israel. obama and netanyahu have clashed to expand settlements over the west bank. there has been some forward movement. prime minister netanyahu did accept the idea of a palestinian state about a month ago. there were some caveats. on the palestinian side, some positive news. the palestinian authority is becoming somewhat less corrupt and more competent. hamas seems to be losing some support, even in gaza, where living conditions continue to be hellish. will t

to control more of america through politicians. that is a fundamentally different world. we believe you ought to develop american energy and american technology so america's able to keep the money at home, both for national security and for economic growth. they believe you ought to raise taxes massively on american energy, cripple the american economy, and make sure that you're dependent forever on countries like venezuela and saudi arabia, a fundamentally different model. we believe you ought to develop green technology. i wrote a book called "contract with europe," describing a green conservatism, but we also recognize there are 240 million vehicles in the current fleet that are going to require current technology fuels for the next generation. they believe he we ought to make a magic switch overnight to technology that is not -- that does not yet exist, at a price that we can't imagine using things we don't know about, from companies that have not yet been formed. fundamentally different model.

always tell a story, and here in mexico, that story is the war raging on america's doorstep. being fought for the right to supply america's demand for illegal drugs. a war becoming more violent, more ruthless, mostly because of one group. to even begin to understand that violence, come with me. here in a barrio in the southern mexican city of veracruz. imagine, if you will, a band of special forces, green beret soldiers go rogue and offer their services and their firepower to the drug cartels. well, that's precisely what's happened in mexico. in the 1990s, commandos from the mexican army deserted and set up their own cartel, known as the los zetas. the los zetas, a group that the u.s. government now says is the most technologically advanced, sophisticated and dangerous cartel, operating in mexico. and this is an example of some of their most recent work. until not so long ago, this was the home to a local police commander. promoted just two months before. and at 5:00 a.m. one morning, two cars pulled up in these streets. eight or nine gunmen got out, armed with assault rifles and 40 milli

in america but if you look at polls that have been released lately, that is so insignificant. i know global warming is something celebrities and people on the left are just absolutely wrapped up in. it's the most important thing in the world to a lot of these people. you look at the polls of americans. that is so low on the list, it's in single digits, i believe. i'm sure somebody from media matters will say -- i've seen polls where americans who care about the environment, global warming is on the bottom of that list and yet they jammed this bill through congress and, again, it just distracts americans from what you say are the top priorities. jobs, jobs, and jobs. >> most normal people in this country when you mention cap and trade to them they'll ask you a question like, well, are we going to get a pitcher in return? they don't know what cap and trade is. >> by the way, mike, i'm not even weighing in on the global warming debate or the health care debate now. i'm simply talking about overloading the circuits with ideological items that middle america just doesn't give a damn about for th
us to trust turning power over to the government when there clearly are people in america who believe in establishing euthanasia including standards. >> let me explain what reform will mean for you and let me start by dispelling the outlandish rumors reform will promote euthanasia or cut medicaid or bring about a government takeover of health care. that's simply not true. >>> welcome to the dog days of august. joe scarborough with you on "morning joe" along with the new and improved, back from northeast harbor, mika brzezinski, and just crazier than ever. >> she looks rested. >> she does. also we have willie geist here. >> willie. >> actually we on "morning joe" do support turning willie over to the death penalty but, i mean, it's nothing personal. we have to cut somewhere. we have to cut somewhere. it's like logan's run, they all about around in those track suits and then they walk -- you can live to 30 and it's a great life. do you remember it from the 1970s? >> do you know what i'm looking forward to is when the new administration takes power and you're trying to get an ambassadors
will become born. we have become slaves of america. if we do not change our thinking lots of baitullahs will keep being born. >> for more on this story we are joined by lisa curtis, she's a senior research fellow at the heritage foundation and she joins us from washington. nice to have you back. >> thanks for having me again. >> what do you think the impact will be on the taliban in pakistan? will they recover from this, and if so, how long will it take them? >> well, i think this is a significant victory for pakistan, its fight against terrorism specially coming on the heels of the pakistan military's ability to oust the taliban from the swat valley region. but we know that military commanders can be replaced. so this doesn't mean the end of the pakistani taliban, yet it is a very significant development. and it could also change the debate about drone strikes in pakistan. pakistani officials have been very critical of these drone strikes but i think it would be hard for them to argue that this is an important tool in the fight against terrorists that threaten pakistan itself. >> that'
in america, and freedom of speech means to express yourselves, but if somebody else wants to express themselves, to have quiet and decorum and civility so we can exchange ideas. there are a great many subjects of importance in washington today. we're working very hard on global warming, the president has put immigration on the agenda for later this year, we are working on judicial nominations and confirmation of supreme court justice sotomayor. we are working hard on the issue of economic recovery, and there are already some positive signs. but it is too early with less than six months on a two-year program to really know. the preliminary indications are positive. but they are tentative. it is understandable that there is a lot of concern in america about what is happening in our country because of the loss of more than 4 million jobs. people are losing their health insurance. there is uncertainty of the future, concern about the large deficit, concern about the large national debt. after being in touch with 12 million people in pennsylvania for meetings, calls, letters, there is a l
the power to communicate and hold our leaders accountable. we must educate america. we must take america back. thank you very much. . . >> after the 2008 election, our friends on the left had some helpful advice for us. move to the left. it was similar to the advice after goldwater lost, after clinton won in 1992. the other team cheerfully advises us to stop talking about taxes, nobody cares about taxes and more. that reminds me of the scene late in committee were the bad guys as to the heroine, put down a gun and we will talk. [laughter] and that the hair -- and if the hero is a foolish, the movie goes on for 45 more minutes. [unintelligible] our coalition holds together because everybody here and everybody in washington, who becomes a tea party activists, are there around the table, for different reasons but they are all there because on the issue that news there but and that brings them to politics, they want one thing from the federal government, they want to be left alone.
